12 Hour Endurance Swim Event - Solo

Description:

 

 

To complete this 12 hour marathon open water swimming event you will need to swim one mile on the hour every hour for twelve hours. This challenge can be undertaken as an individual or as a pair (alternating every hour). 

The first mile of our epic challenge will commence at 20:00 on Saturday 24th May 2019 and the final mile must be completed by 08:00 on Sunday 25th May 2019.

Please do not underestimate the magnitude of this challenge. You must be very competent and experienced in open water swimming, night swimming, cold water management and endurance events. Applications will be considered in light of your experience; if you require any guidance  we are happy to have a chat with you in advance of applying.

 

The event will take place at Hatfield Outdoor Activity Centre in Doncaster with camping available on site via pitch.com
